DREAM. DEBITO D'AMORE di Karina Halle



TITOLO: Dream. Debito d’amore.
AUTORE: Karina Halle
AMBIENTAZIONE: Edimburgo
GENERE: Romance contemporaneo
SERIE: Dream #5

Jessica Charles non avrebbe neppure dovuto trovarsi a Londra, quel giorno. Eppure è successo l'impensabile. Incredibile visto che i suoi piani prevedevano un ritorno tranquillo a Edimburgo, una passeggiata con il fidanzato e magari un paio di drink con sua sorella. Senza dimenticare lo yoga con il suo gruppo di amiche, ovviamente. Avrebbe dovuto continuare con la sua normalissima vita rassicurante, invece quel fatidico giorno di agosto il mondo di Jessica è cambiato per sempre: un ex soldato mentalmente instabile ha fatto fuoco sulla folla. Ora è single e immobilizzata a causa delle ferite da arma da fuoco, sola e spaventata. È vicina a perdere per sempre la fiducia in se stessa e nell'intera umanità, visti i terribili momenti che sta affrontando. Questo, fino a che un completo estraneo entra nella sua vita. Uno sconosciuto che la fa sentire di nuovo viva. Keir McGregor è sempre stato un tipo forte, silenzioso. È il classico uomo scozzese: alto, cupo e molto affascinante. Ma Keir è tutt'altro che perfetto: è in fuga da un passato oscuro e il senso di colpa lo tormenta. Più tempo trascorre con Jessica, però, e più si innamora di lei. Ma ci sono dei segreti che minacciano di separarli per sempre. Perché per Jessica lui potrà anche essere un completo estraneo... Ma non è così per Keir.

Lentamente, ma inesorabilmente, sta sconfiggendo il senso di colpa e si sta lasciando alle spalle il suo tragico passato.

Finché non incontra lei.

Natasha Trudeau amava un uomo così tanto che pensava di morire senza di lui. Ma il loro amore era sbagliato, destinato a finire già dall'inizio, e quando il loro mondo va in frantumi, Natasha rimane quasi sepolta sotto le macerie. Ci sono voluti anni per dimenticare, e ora che è a Londra è pronta a ricominciare.

Lei pensa che lui sia un playboy arrogante.
Lui pensa che lei sia una fredda bacchettona.
Ma sta per farle una proposta che non potrà rifiutare.

Nicola Price aveva tutto: una carriera fantastica, il fidanzato perfetto, una collezione di scarpe esagerata e un appartamento in uno dei migliori quartieri di San Francisco. Ma quando rimane incinta e il suo stupido fidanzato la lascia di punto in bianco, il mondo perfetto di Nicola precipita. Senza rialzarsi. Oggi Nicola è la fiera madre single di una bambina di cinque anni e vive una gigantesca bugia. Può permettersi a malapena il suo appartamento, e tutti gli uomini con cui esce scappano quando scoprono che ha una figlia. Fatica a tirare avanti e ha paura, ed è ben lontana dalla posizione in cui si immaginava di essere a trentun'anni. La sua salvezza arriva sotto forma di uno scozzese alto, bello e ricco di nome Bram McGregor, il fratello maggiore del suo amico Linden. Bram ne sa qualcosa di orgoglio, così quando alcune circostanze tragiche fanno toccare il fondo a Nicola, le offre un appartamento dove stare in un palazzo di sua proprietà. È un'offerta fantastica, sempre che non sia un problema per lei vivere accanto a Bram, un uomo che, malgrado la sua generosità, sembra voler discutere con lei su tutto. Ma niente è gratis e mentre Nicola si rimette in sesto, scopre che l'enigmatico playboy potrebbe costarle più di quel che pensava. Potrebbe perdere il suo cuore. I fratelli McGregor portano solo problemi...

Heat Wave di Karina Halle





They say when life closes one door, another one opens.
This door happens to lead to paradise.
And a man I can never, ever have.

~~~

Still grieving the loss of her sister who died two years ago, the last thing Veronica "Ronnie" Locke needed was to lose her job at one of Chicago’s finest restaurants and have to move back in with her parents. So when a window of opportunity opens for her – running a kitchen at a small Hawaiian hotel – she’d be crazy not to take it.

The only problem is, the man running the hotel drives her crazy:
Logan Shephard.
It doesn’t matter that he’s got dark brown eyes, a tall, muscular build that’s sculpted from daily surfing sessions, and a deep Australian accent that makes your toes curl.
What does matter is that he’s a grump.
Kind of an asshole, too.
And gets under Ronnie’s skin like no one else.

But the more time Ronnie spends on the island of Kauai, falling in love with the lush land and its carefree lifestyle, the closer she gets to Logan. And the closer she gets to Logan, the more she realizes she may have pegged him all wrong. Maybe it’s the hot, steamy jungles or the invigorating ocean air, but soon their relationship becomes utterly intoxicating.

There’s just one major catch.

The two of them together would incite a scandal neither Ronnie, nor her family, would ever recover from.

Forbidden, Illicit, off-limits – sometimes the heat is worth surrendering to, even if you get burned.

Note: this is a standalone novel, unrelated to any previous books. It does NOT contain cheating of any kind.

The Debt by Karina Halle


Her life changed in an instant. 
And he's the only one who could have prevented it. 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Pact and The Lie comes a new standalone contemporary romance about those McGregor men. 

Jessica Charles shouldn't have even been in London when the unthinkable happened. 
She should have been back at home in Edinburgh, perhaps hanging with her boyfriend, having drinks with her sister or doing yoga with her group of friends. She should have been going on in her normal, dependable life as always. 
But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally-ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica's world changed forever. 
Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes. 
That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again. 
Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome and you've got pretty much the perfect Scotsman. 
Except Keir is anything but perfect. He's got a past he's running away from and a guilty conscience he can't seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her. 
And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart. 
He may have been a stranger to her. 
But she’s never been a stranger to him.

The Lie by Karina Halle


Their love led to a lie
Their truth led to the end

Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident and his job from his subsequent downward spiral, he's finally moving forward, getting a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and a new life in the city. Slowly, but surely, he's pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him.

Until he sees her.

Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much she thought she'd die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she's in London, she's ready to start again.

Until she sees him.

Because some loves are too dangerous to ever indulge.
And some loves are far too powerful to ignore.
Their love just might be the life and the death of them.

Smut by Karina Halle


What happens when the kink between the pages leads to heat between the sheets?

All Blake Crawford wants is to pass his creative writing course, get his university degree, and take over his dad’s ailing family business. What Amanda Newland wants is to graduate at the top of her class, as well as finally finish her novel and prove to her family that writing is a respectful career.

What Blake and Amanda don’t want is to be paired up with each other for their final project, but that’s exactly what they both get when they’re forced to collaborate on a writing piece. Since Amanda thinks Blake is a pushy asshole (with a panty-melting smirk and British accent) and Blake thinks Amanda has a stick up her ass (though it’s a brilliant ass), they fight tooth and nail until they discover they write well together. They also may find each other really attractive, but that’s neither here nor there.

When their writing project turns out to be a success, the two of them decide to start up a secret partnership using a pen name, infiltrating the self-publishing market in the lucrative genre of erotica. Naturally, with so much heat and passion between the pages, it’s not long before their dirty words become a dirty reality. Sure, they still fight a lot, but at least there’s make-up sex now.

But even as they start to fall hard for each other, will their burgeoning relationship survive if their scandalous secret is exposed? Or are happily-ever-afters just a work of fiction?

The Offer #2 McGregor Brother Series di Karina Halle


She thinks he's an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she's an uptight prude.

But he's about to make her an offer she can't refuse.


Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola’s perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.


Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She’s struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she’d be at age thirty-one.

Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It’s pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn’t mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.

But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.

She might just lose her heart.

Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble...

The Pact #1 McGregor Brothers Karina Halle



It all started with a pinky swear…

Linden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him.

But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.

Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them are in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.

It sounds like fun and games but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.

Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line.

The pact is about to change everything.


*The Pact is a FULL-LENGTH 


*STANDALONE (not part of a series, no cliffhanger, fully wrapped-up novel) 


*"FRIENDS-TO-LOVERS" CONTEMPORARY ADULT ROMANCE

Dirty Deeds by Karina Halle Release Day



“He’s fearless and ruthless. Soulless.”

As a flight attendant, Alana Bernal has had her share of suitors. She's also had more than her fair share of tragedy within her messed-up family. But what she hasn't had is love. Real, rip-your-heart-out, tear-your-clothes-off, all-consuming love.
At least that was the case until she met an American tourist, Derek Conway, a ripped ex-soldier with steely eyes and a commanding presence.
What started as a chance encounter between the two in Puerto Vallarta, a weekend full of hot sex and mindless passion, has led to something more.
Something deadly.
Because Derek isn't the type of man to fall in love. He's not a man who sticks around.
And he's definitely not in Mexico on vacation.
Derek is a mercenary, a killer-for-hire, a man who does the ugly jobs for the highest bidder.
Unfortunately for Alana and Derek, the highest bidder has the power to destroy whatever worlds they have created for themselves.

The highest bidder can destroy everything.


This is a romantic suspense book, #2 in the Dirty Angels trilogy 

but can be read as a standalone novel*

The

Her eyes are so blue and wide, like the morning sky, her
mouth so perfectly full. I contemplate running my thumb over her lips before I
kiss the salt off of them.
I should just do it. I should just fucking do it.
I swallow hard, my throat feeling closed up but I know it’s
not from my cold. It’s from want and it’s from fear.
“What are you staring at?” she asks me, her voice shaking slightly.

Just fucking kiss her.
